Disney’s Searchlight Pictures is currently in talks with Keira Knightley to star in an upcoming sci-fi drama film, “Conception”.
This new film is set in the near future, when the British government takes authoritarian rule over parenting. It follows a vigorous License Officer (Knightley), who is a firm believer in the controversial system she upholds until an unexpected event imperils her own parental status in the very administration she enforces.
This upcoming film will be written and directed by Camille Griffin, who has recently worked with Keira Knightley on the upcoming film “Silent Night”.
Maven Screen Media’s Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler are producing the film. With Searchlight SVP Production, Taylor Friedman and Director of Development & Production Pete Spencer also overseeing the project.
